Spanish design studio BLOCD have paid tribute to the father of modern printing with a sweet treat.

In honour of the creator of modern printing in the 20th century, J. Gutenberg, Spanish design studio, BLOCD have paid tribute to the father of modern printing.

Before the age of digital printing, movable types provided the basis of book printing around the world.

This was until J. Gutenberg introduced the mechanical movable type, and so began the printing revolution across Europe.

Gutenberg's creation is widely regarded as the most important invention of the second millennium, the seminal event which ushered in the modern period of human history.
